surviving summer

Summer is tough. There's the late nights and early mornings, lots of work to do outside, and all that pressure to have fun every day! It takes a toll in the best of times, and over the last week-plus we added some sickness (and Lijah came down with the disease the beginning of this past week) and then Harvey's big oral surgery to take out the extra teeth that were coming in through the roof of his mouth. So most of this week was kind of a blur: as the days drifted by there were many moments when I had no idea what time it was or what I was supposed to be doing. But we're all healthy now; it's time to get some sleep and hit the ground running for another week!
